What are your Prince stories?

article image placeholderUploaded by @kimestryarts
So mine is spending a week at Paisley Park for Xenophobia in 2002 and going to a Pajama party concert with Prince and Sheila E. And when the concert ended at 02:00, a.m. Princeday said, you want to go to the movies. And we were like, what? And he had rented out three movie theaters in this one complex. And he paid for everyone to go to the movies. And we saw a minority Report in our pajamas

My story

And then you had swing beat at the time, which was New Jack swing. We call it swing beat in London. And then you had hip hop until four or five in the morning. So anyway, I've gone to the concert and the concert wraps up about 1030, I suppose. Eleven. And I've gone straight to the club and the whole new Power generation turns up all of them, not prints, but the new Power Generation

Mark, I do not want to mislead anybody. I did not personally know. Prince Prince used to have these events called celebrations at Paisley Park around his birthday, up until he became a Hova's wife and stopped celebrating birthday. So that's how I got to be at Paisley Park with a thousand of my closest friends. So yeah, I didn't know him personally, but I have tons of print stories and I was actually an extra in one of his videos as well

And so I grew up listening to a lot of Princeday and having a deep love and respect for his work because my mom was just obsessed with him. So I've seen him many times in concert. And man, he could just put on such an incredible show. Definitely some of the best performances I've ever seen in my life

@kimestryarts which video??!?

And as I go to turn around, there's all these people in pajamas walking towards me and just got finished parking the car. And maybe I saw you. Who knows? But I thought it looked like a blast. And all my time in Minnesota, I only saw him in person once. He was walking through a building and everybody noticed him. Everybody knew who he was and not one person bothered Kim

Hi, Phil. So the video that I was in is called My name is Prince. And that's another one of my Prince stories. So I live in La, and I was working in Hollywood, would at a company called Production Associates, Los Angeles. And I was an office manager, and my job was to place people on set as production assistance. And we got the call for the Prince video. And I got all excited
